"Copper builds up the collagen and elastin of the skin that holds the hair follicle," said Dr. Ellen Marmur, a board-certified dermatologist and associate clinical professor in the department of dermatology and the department of genetics and genomic research at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai in New York City.
Copper also helps to balance the hormones so hair grows strong and aids other reactions in the scalp that strengthen lipids in the hair. Other copper-rich foods include shellfish, veal, beef, whole grains, dark leafy green vegetables, beans and legumes, nuts and chocolate. #FoxNews

EAT COOL & BEAT THE HEAT: The hot months are here... you can expect more people to get irritable & spot longer queues at the doctor's.
The solution isn't gulping down icy-cold cans of cola, though - that only gives you temporary respite, and may even disorientate your digestive system!
What your body needs is proper 'cooling' foods to remove the excess heat.
The notion of 'cooling' and 'heat-y' foods comes from concepts in traditional Chinese and Indian science of healing. In Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), it is believed that one has to balance the cooling ('yin') and heat-y ('yang') aspects of our body in order to achieve good health. Such a concept is not peculiar to TCM, as it is also one that Indian traditional science, Ayurveda, follows. In Ayurveda, it is believed that it is important to balance the heat in the body (pitta) in order to maintain a good digestive system and general health, and cooling foods need to be consumed in order to remove the excess 'pitta'.
Regardless of whether you naturally have a lot of 'pitta' or 'yang' in your body constitution, in the hot months, your body acquires more heat, and you certainly need to feed your body with 'cooling' foods in order to strike a balance and keep your body systems sane. #YahooSingapore #Makansutra
